Exemplar Health Care submits planning application for new care home in Oakham
17 February 2021
Exemplar Health Care is a leading provider of specialist nursing care for adults living with complex care needs. We're pleased to announce that we've put in a planning application to build a new 30 bedroom care home and six bedroom bungalow in Oakham, in the Hawksmead Park area.
The proposed care home will support adults who need specialist nursing care and rehabilitation following a brain injury, spinal cord injury or stroke, or are living with a complex physical disability or mental health condition. The six bedroom bungalow will be a standalone service for people living with learning disabilities.
We’ve worked closely with health and social care authorities in the area, and hope to bring these specialist services to Oakham to enable local people who have suffered an accident, or are living with complex needs, to receive the specialist care that they need close to their homes and loved ones.
Plans for the home
We’re working with reputable pre-application Planning Advisors and Architects to ensure that the design of the building is in keeping with the local area, whilst also meeting the needs of the residents who will live in the home.
We're pleased to share the initial site plan proposals with you:
Our community-based homes provide person-centred care and rehabilitation that focuses on maximising independence, building everyday living skills and empowering people to live as fulfilled lives as possible.
We support people on their journey from being in hospital to community-based living, as well as offering longer term support for people living with degenerative or life-limiting illnesses.
We’re proud that our homes have a strong connection with their local community, including schools, colleges and charities. We also support and source local businesses for services such as window cleaning, taxis and garden maintenance – so we hope to work with many of you over the coming years.
Careers with Exemplar Health Care
If granted, the proposal in Oakham will create a substantial number of jobs during the construction phase of the works and in excess of 100 full and part time jobs when the home is operational. Please check back the website or follow us on Facebook for the latest job announcements.
